K-01 is fine, user not so much %^)

After using the SMC-A 24mm for a while at a family Christmas event, I swapped to the DA40. AF was not working. In dismay I tried several AF options, cleaned contacts on lens and body, swapped in the DA70... no luck. Then I saw the AF/AE button on the back and tried that. Oh yeah that's right: last week I used the custom-button menu to disable AF on the shutter button - very clever at the time, but so much for my internal memory . When will I get a firmware update for that?

Merry Christmas to all, and to one of us a palm to the forehead!

Sadly it just gets worse as we go along. I have resorted to post-it notes. Now if I could just find the darned note............

Merry Christmas!

I seldom change WB from auto, but when I do, I always forget to set it back.
Then wonder what the heck is going on with the color in my photos!

Merry Christmas everyone!
